So I fired up Campaign and decided to try out my Alliance designs in the normal mode.
I was all cocky because I’d gotten in the top 100 for each Survival scenario. I thought I was pretty hot stuff in this game. Now I have had an uncomfortable reminder of how much better many of you are. That’s what I get for not continuing with my original plan (try out Cadet level with each race before trying out the next level). Don’t get me wrong! I’ll be back at it, but man I thought I was better than that.
Another interesting lesson has been that my heavily armored EMP missile/Ion Frigates are maybe not so effective against many of you. I had thought they were effectively immune to Frigate weapons, barring the Lucky Shot thing.
So to those who are much better with designs and deployment, congratulations.
You’ll see me again soon enough.
